Workshop: "Awakening the Now: Poetry and the Practice of Mindfulness"

With Patti Russo & Steven Durost

3 – 4:30 PM
Life Alive Urban Oasis and Café

Mindfulness means being fully awake and fully aware. It means experiencing the richness of the present moment instead of analyzing the past or worrying about the future. Using the poetry of Mary Oliver, William Stafford and others we’ll explore how to cultivate mindfulness and how living mindfully affects our lives as humans and as writers. Group discussion and reflective writing will be part of this experiential workshop.
